KYBELLA

KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.

FAQs

HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?

When injected into the area beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism. Once the aesthetic response is achieved, further treatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.

How is Kybella administered?

KYBELLA® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare provider will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

Your healthcare provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Patients can receive up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.

What can I expect after my treatment session?

For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment. Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.

Will there be side effects?

The most common treatment area side effects include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness
       - Redness
       - Areas of hardness
